Brainstorming Grants

Brainstorming grants are available to support Tri-Co faculty members who share common interests. The goal is to encourage faculty to discuss scholarly interests, curricular projects, program initiatives, and work-life issues and to make cross-campus connections in an informal environment. Funds can be used for expenses including lunches, dinners, and reading materials materials. Calls for applications will be publicized via email in early October, with the proposal deadline in early November, and notification of the successful grant awards following by December. 

An application for a Brainstorming grant includes the following:

  1. A brief (about one page) description of the interest group
  2. The nature of the meetings or activities
  3. A tentative list of attendees (representatives from the three campuses strongly desirable, two is allowable)
  4. Budget  (Meals, reading materials, and local travel expenses for participants may be included. Honoraria may not exceed $500 except in unusual circumstances. Honoraria for Tri-Co faculty are excluded.)
